Impact Results

 

Fighting poverty through education in a deprived region of southern India: is it realistic?

 

Here are the results:

 

On children

 

  • Families with modest incomes have realized the importance of education and know that the Saint Antony Foundation, after investigation, can contribute to the education of their children. Few Kanji children are now out of school;

 

  • In partnership with the English association, 100 children from underprivileged families receive free quality education at Saint Antony school;

 

  • Out of the 1,600 pupils present in the school, 120 leave the tenth class each year with a success rate of 100% in the final exam;

 

  • The quality of education is recognized by the state administration which awarded the Best School and Best Teachers awards in 2017;

 

  • Most students continue their studies beyond the tenth grade.

On the community

 

  • The school directly employs 100 people: teachers, administrative and maintenance staff. More than 100 families contribute to the development of Kanji;

 

  • Students are encouraged to join the groups supervised by volunteer teachers:

 

  • Scouting with the application of respect for others, solidarity and loyalty.

 

  • Nature conservation: more than 2,000 trees have been planted in villages and on campus. Interventions took place in the villages to raise awareness of hygiene and the environment (waste, plastic, etc.).

 

  • Each year, in collaboration with the Association, a dozen French medical students go to Kanji where they provide hygiene advice to the inhabitants of the city and provide free medical visits.

 

  • The Kanji Foundation distributes one hot meal per day to abandoned seniors in the neighboring villages.
